Types of Cars we Scrap
We are willing to buy the following types of scrap cars:
- Insurance write-offs
- Damaged cars
- Flood damaged cars
- Un-roadworthy cars
- MOT failures
- Junk and salvage cars
- Vehicles which are too costly to repair due to engine or gearbox problems
- Fleet cars
- Foreign cars which are not UK registered
- Part-exchange cars
Certificate of Destruction
After we scrap your car, we will issue you with an official DVLA Certificate of Destruction. This proves that we have removed your scrap car’s details from the DVLAs database and reassures your peace of mind.
Without a DVLA Certificate of Destruction, as the owner of the car you would still be liable to pay road tax and could receive an £80 fine from the DVLA. It’s a legal requirement for all scrap cars to be issued with a certificate of destruction – but don’t worry about contacting the DVLA as we will send your DVLA Certificate of Destruction via post up to 14 days after your vehicle has been scrapped.
